They Let Me Out Of My Cage...

Saturday I had a full day out.  Since there was not much time between my friend's baby shower and the blogger meet up, I decided to take one dress and style it two ways, changing the jewelry and shoes.

First i started with a basic blue dress.  I bought it for $11 at the Banana Republic Outlet two years ago.  When I first bought it, I couldn't zipper.  I was so excited that when I tried it on the other night and it zipped, I did the happy dance around the house...ha!

So, for the baby shower, I decided to try to make the dress more casual by styling it with a fun beaded necklace, leopard cardi, and strappy, low heeled clogs.




Then, I wanted to dress the dress up a bit for the meet up.  So, first I ditched the cardi, then I dug out my highest heeled sandals and chunky beads.  I bought these sandals about 4 years ago for a party.  But after, my feel hurt so bad, I stuck then in the back of my closet never to be worn again...until Saturday.  My feet are a bit more adept at wearing heels now, so I dug them out and tried them on...not real comfortable, but they would do.





The baby shower was a lot more fun than I expected.  I was so great to see Jennifer and her family.  I know she is going to be a wonderful mother...I cannot wait to meet her little baby.


I had such a great day.  It was really nice to have a day to myself, no kids, no pressure...  But now back to the craziness...I would not have it any other way!

I love how you switched up your accessories mid-day! So much easier then a full outfit change. I do wish you had kept that yellow necklace on though - it's a fave of mine!

I love that dress--what a versatile piece that looks SO good on you! I love the mix of leopard and yellow in the baby shower look. I've got to get some more leopard for fall!!

So much fun! I love that you were able to remix your outfit on the fly, like that :) Both stylings were gorgeous.

Hope the blogger meet-up was fun!

Look at you, switching it up so effortlessly! Do you have an email address I can send pics to from the blogger meetup? I have the group shot that we took at the end, but I can't seem to find a contact email on your site here!

It was awesome meeting you Saturday! Can't wait for another fun meetup in the future! :)

The yellow necklace against the blue dress is just brilliant!
